Facebook and First Five Freebie!

Happy Thursday- can I say I am slightly sad as this means my spring break is nearing a close...I love all this uninterrupted time to relax and be productive at the same time!

Anywho..I thought I would present my post to you in somewhat of a list format tonight. As I have three ever so important things to share with you ;).

1. I officially started "The Second Grade Superkids" facebook page! I would LOVE (yes, that's a whole lotta love) for you to check it out....let me know what you think- I am in love with my "superkid" banner! Click on the image of my new page to take you there, or the icon on my sidebar works pretty swell as well!

2. I created a new spring time math center activity today (during some of that relax yet productive time off). Its called "A Shopping Trip to the Greenhouse", and it contains cards with various items to be bought at the greenhouse (seeds, tools, gloves, etc.) along with their prices. The students then match the item cards with the corresponding coin cards. In second grade we really hit hard on determining more than one coin combination for a given value- thus there are two coin combinations cards that go with each item your students could "buy" to practice this concept!

Click on the image to take you to my TpT store to grab this center activity -or- be one of the first five people to comment sharing what's your favorite thing to plant in your garden or if you do not have one what would be the first thing you would plant if you did. Please leave me your email address, and I will send you your free copy!

3. Finally- don't forget to enter in our "Dazzling Double Giveaway" to celebrate reaching 100 followers. You could win 2 of my latest units as well as an amazing new math centers unit and 5 other units of your choice from Casey over at Second Grade Math Maniac. That's 8 (I repeat) 8, units in all!
